FRC Action Praises John McCain's Pro-Life Comments
Date:4/17/2008

WASHINGTON, April 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Family Research Council Action applauds GOP Presidential candidate Senator John McCain and his comments on Tuesday from Villanova University supporting the pro-life platform of the Republican Party. FRC Action also releases the pro-life voting record of possible running mates.

FRC Action's Senior Vice President Connie Mackey stated, "I am encouraged to hear Senator McCain depict his support for life as a 'deeply held belief.' Tuesday night he wholly embraced the pro-life position as both the Party's and his own. Furthermore, he rightly described the pro-life plank in the Republican Party platform as 'one of the fundamental principles of my party.'"

"We encourage McCain to bring someone onto the ticket with himself that will reflect traditional family values, support marriage between one man and one woman, and have a strong pro-life stance," added Mackey.

In addition to McCain's former rivals, Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney and Fred Thompson, several other vice presidential candidates have been mentioned in the media and are listed below with a brief explanation of their pro-life record:

Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty has passed pro-life legislation but his position on embryonic stem cell research needs clarification.

South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford is opposed to abortion, voted for a ban on "partial-birth" abortion and advanced legislation requiring women to see the results of an ultrasound prior to an abortion.

South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint is strongly pro-life and opposed expanding research on embryonic stem cell lines.

Former Ohio Rep. and former Director of the Office of Management and Budget Rob Portman strongly opposes abortion and gets a 0% rating from the abortion group NARAL. He has a lifetime ACU Rating of 89 and between 1997 and 2004 he received a perfect 100% from the National Right to Life.

Utah Governor Jon Huntsman, Jr. supported and signed into law parental consent requirement for abortion.

Florida Governor Charlie Crist says he is now pro-life, although formerly pro-choice 10 years ago, he cast the deciding vote against a 24 hour waiting period for abortion. Additionally, when asked recently by National Review if he thought Roe v. Wade was "wrongly decided," he said, "No I don't think it should be overturned." He does support parental notification rights and believes in the prohibition of "partial-birth" abortion.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice expresses her position on abortion as "mildly pro-choice." She supports parental rights, opposes a ban on late-term abortions, but she also takes a libertarian stance in support of a woman's right to abortion.
